Om forfatteren

Yasunari Kawabata, winner of the 1968 Nobel Prize for Literature, was one of Japan's most distinguished novelists. Born in Osaka in 1899, he published his first stories while he was still in high school. Among his major novels published across the world are Snow Country (1956), Thousand Cranes (1959), The Sound of the Mountain (1972), and Beauty and Sadness (1975). Kawabata was found dead, by his own hand, in 1972.

Anmeldelser

«This novel is one of modern literature's greatest, most poignant elegies»

Washington Post

«Kawabata's narrative spirals through the book's events in ruminative glides and turns... There is a kind of low-key daring, an austere, autumnal nobility, in Kawabata's tale»

Time

«An archetypal saga... there are storms and landscapes as cool, as luminous, as any in Japanese paintings and woodcuts»

The New Yorker
